Multimodal imaging microscope for tissue engineering applications

  Motivation for the study Tissue engineering is an evolving field of medicine that aims to grow new viable tissue for repairing or regenerating damaged tissues in the body. These tissue constructs are typically made by placing cells in support matrices that have proper growth-inducing factors. However, visualizing the development and composition of these tissue constructs is challenging with currently available optical imaging methods: they are either not capable of producing 3D images at sufficient depth or lack the bright-field imaging functionality. To answer this Continue reading →Customer case Research by: Computational biophysics and imaging research group at Tampere University.

ML7710 for fluorescence imaging: Detection of colorectal polyps in humans using c-Met targeted fluorescent peptide

Motivation for the study Polyps are small growths on the inner lining of the colon or rectum, affecting around 1 in 4 people over the age of 50. Certain types of polyps may eventually become cancerous, and colon cancer prevention relies on colonoscopy using white light to detect and remove the polyps. However, small and flat polyps are difficult to detect and frequently missed with this technique. More precise methods to detect polyps before they progress to colorectal cancer are urgently needed. GE Healthcare’s patented EMI-137 Continue reading →Customer Case Research by: GE Healthcare is a manufacturer and distributor of diagnostic imaging agents and radiopharmaceuticals, R&D collaborations with Leiden University MC for early detection of colorectal tumors. Modulight products: ML7710 series clinical laser system (635 nm, 3 W) Laser use: Clinical single-wavelength laser device used for exciting novel fluorescence probe used to detect colorectal polyps. Link to the study: Dr. James Hardwick, Professor of gastroenterology & hepatology Research topics: Professor Hardwick’s research has contributed to many key improvements in the detection and treatment of colorectal Continue reading →
